Final Roster Named For USA U19 Men’s Team

Final Roster Named For USA U19 Men’s Team

USA basketball has revealed the final 12-man roster for the U19 men’s national team.   The 12 players were chosen from a group of 18 finalists – named on June 20 – who competed at the U19 trials in Colorado Springs, Colorado.   The team will compete in the 2017 FIBA U19 World Cup July 1-9 in Cairo, Egypt.   The USA squad will continue to train in Colorado Springs before leaving for Egypt on June 25.   “Every player on this team can play different positions and has different abilities,” USA head coach John Calipari told usab.com. “Whether they’re a point guard and a scorer or whether they’re wing and a point guard, or a wing and a power player.”   “We only took two true bigs [6-11 Brandon McCoy and 6-9 Austin Wiley], which is kind of dangerous,” added Calipari. “But, we decided that if we had to, we could go small and go zone.”     Below is the complete U19 roster:   Hamidou Diallo (Kentucky/Queens, NY); Carsen Edwards (Purdue/Atascocita, Texas); Kevin Huerter (Maryland/Clifton Park, N.Y.); Louis King (Hudson Catholic H.S./Columbus, N.J.); Romeo Langford (New Albany H.S./New Albany, Ind.); Brandon McCoy (Cathedral Catholic H.S/San Diego, Calif.); Josh Okogie (Georgia Tech/Snellville, Ga.); Payton Pritchard (Oregon/West Linn, Ore.); Immanuel Quickly (John Carroll School/Bel Air, Md.); Cameron Reddish (Westtown School/Norristown, Pa.); P.J. Washington (Findlay Prep/Las Vegas, Nev.); and Austin Wiley (Auburn/Hoover, Ala.).     For more basketball news go to http://www.blacktoptv.com/
